Yoga on Lido Key Beach and Other Ways to Work Out on Vacation

Just because you’re headed on vacation doesn’t mean you have to give up your workout plans! While it can feel hard to stay active when you’re away from home, Lido Key is the perfect place to get your exercise while enjoying your vacation at the same time. Here are a few of our favorite ways to experience yoga and other fitness activities near our Lido Key rentals.

Beach Yoga

Beach yoga is the perfect way to exercise while still feeling like you’re on vacation. Luckily, Lido Key and the surrounding area has several beach yoga experiences for you to take advantage of. Elin Larsen hosts a popular free yoga session at Venice Beach virtually every day. These classes are perfect for any age and skill level, so you can bring the whole family along and let your kids play in the sand while you get your workout in. Classes take place Monday through Saturday at 8 and 9 a.m. as well as Sundays at 8 a.m. from November through early March.

If you’re looking for a challenge and more time on the water, consider a paddleboard yoga class! SURFit USA provides stand up paddleboard fitness and yoga classes that will test your balance and give you an incredible workout. Yoga classes cost $25 per class, which includes all equipment. On Wednesdays, classes take place at 10 a.m. and Saturdays at 5:30 p.m., leaving from Ted Sperling Park at South Lido Beach.

Yoga Studios

If you don’t want to practice yoga on the beach, you can head to nearby Sarasota for a more traditional yoga studio experience. Pineapple Yoga + Cycling Studio in Burns Court is a body-positive studio that is perfect for your workout. Whether you are brand new to yoga or practice regularly, you’ll have an enjoyable experience here. You can easily find the class schedule on their website and sign up for anything from the introductory classes to a more advanced Power Vinyasa.

Classes are held weekly on Zoom and cost just $5 to participate. You can choose from the Savasana Sunday, Gentle Yoga Online, or All Levels Online classes.

Outdoor Activities

If you haven’t picked up a hula hoop since you were in grade school, visit Nokomis Beach to test the hobby and get a great workout! Monday, Wednesday, and Friday mornings at 9 a.m., as well as sunset sessions on Wednesdays, Hoola-Fit classes, are held by local studio Peace, Love, and Hoopiness. Don’t worry if you’re a new hooper; all ages and skill levels are welcome.

You’ll feel like a kid again with your hula hoop, and you can burn up to 400 calories in a 60-minute workout!

Running is one of the most convenient ways to work out since you don’t need anything but your shoes! There are plenty of great spots nearby to run, but many locals recommend heading to Siesta Beach. You can run the entire distance of Siesta Beach for a 6-mile journey, or take on a shorter route by going south from the main public beach area and back for a 3-mile run.
